NPAFC Science Plan

The NPAFC Science Plan is a long-term plan for cooperative scientific research. The present plan, which was adopted by the Commission at its 2016 Annual Meeting, is for the period of 2016–2020. At the 2020 Annual Meeting, the current Science Plan was revised and adopted so that the term of the current Science Plan has been extended to 2022 and aligned with the International Year of the Salmon (IYS) initiatives (2016–2022).
